Underwater Exploration Game Abzû is Coming to Nintendo Switch


The ocean is a beautiful and occasionally terrifying place. There have been a fair amount of adventure games that allow gamers to explore the vast blue expanse, but few do it as beautifully as Abzû. For those who have yet to play it, now you have no reason not to because it is coming to the Switch.

Independent game publisher 505 Games and developer Giant Squid Studios announced that their award-winning game Abzû will be coming out on Nintendo Switch on November 29th. It will be priced at $19.00/£14.99, but you can pre-order the game and receive a 10% discount.

Abzû is a gorgeous ocean exploration game where the story leads you through vibrant environments bursting at the gills with color and life that feature amazing lighting dynamics that help create unparalleled underwater realism. The game hosts an incredible variety of fish species from around the world that all interact with you and each other. 

When this game was first released in 2016 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, it was praised by both fans and critics. It also won numerous awards and nominations in the 2016 Game Awards, Golden Joystick Awards, and the 2017 BAFTA Games Awards.
